This is now my favorite fairy coloring book!! (can I give it more than 5 stars?!) The pictures are filled with tons of details, including animals, flowers and tons of extras that make it extraordinary. (some fairy books are limited in the backgrounds, not this one!) Once I get my coloring hands on these pics, I'll be back to update my review with a colored pic. If you love coloring fairies, this is a MUST HAVE addition to your collection!

This is my second book of fairy designs by Barbara Lanza. The first was a best-selling book by Creative Haven. This book is by another publisher and while the artwork is as good if not better, the one thing that I miss in this book are the perforated pages. That certainly would not keep me from enjoying coloring in this book but it is something to note if you also own the prior bookThe fairies are beautiful and are in a variety of settings and poses. I really enjoy that some are fairly simple (such as my first project with a fairy and a sunflower) and that others are much more detailed with lots of back ground setting design.This is what I found in and about the coloring book:25 Elegant Fairy DesignsPrinted on one side of thin, slightly rough, non-perforated white paperA few designs merge into the binding areaGlue BoundAlcohol and water-based markers bleed through the pageGel pens and India Ink pens leave shadows of color on the back of the page.Coloring pencils work well with the paper. Soft lead pencils go on with good coverage and layer and blend well. Hard lead pencils work well but also dent the back of the page.I recommend using a blotter page below the page you are working on to keep ink or dents from marring the design on the next page.
This book features such beautiful illustrations. There are so many little details and surprises.The fairies have such personality. This coloring book is elegant, whimsical and charming.A fairy lovers dream!
am enjoying this book so much, this artist is also the artist who wrote one of my favorite self-teaching art books, how to draw and paint enchanting fairies. really excellent for figure studies. and fun. i liked the idea of a coloring book but found colored pencils and marking pens less satisfying than hoped for. now using inktense pencils that are then 'painted' with water for a watercolor effect--fabulous, especially with this book, wing colors.
Lanza's other fairy book, Enchanted Fairies, has perforated pages. This book does not have that feature. Also, what is the point of two blank pages at the back of the book? I give the fairy images a five but the lack of perforations and blank pages make me rate the book itself a four.
Beautiful images. I love this book. The illustrations are so fun to color, allowing me to blend and use all different types of mediums. Gel pens, markers, and colored pencils. Paper is grest quality and my markers don't bleed through. I wish pages were perforated which is reason for 4 star rating.
When I saw this I knew I had to add this to my order as my mom loves Faires and She doesnt have any addult coloring books of her own. We usually share my books if we decide to sit down and color. So I thought this is the perfect coloring book for her. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful. The faires are so well drawn they are not funny looking like they can be in some books, there faces, dresses and backgrounds are great. My mom loved this when I gave it to her and she is very excited to color the wonderful and magical pages that lie inside this amazing book.
Very cute drawings in this book. If you are a fan of fairies then this one should be on your list to get ! THe book s standard sixe and the paper quality is average. It will do well with colored pencils but I cannot say how it would do with markers or gel pens since I dont use either. Overall I think this is a fantastic book and will look for more from this artist !
